Birmingham: Plays of the day from the fourth day of the third Test between England and India at Edgbaston.
Precedent of the day
Were India's batsmen up for the fight? To judge from the maddening swish with which Virender Sehwag collected his king pair on Friday evening, there was a certain something lacking from their mindset, and on Saturday morning, Gautam Gambhir did nothing to dispel that perception. James Anderson's first delivery pitched on middle-and-leg and zipped towards the slips, and as it did so, Gambhir obligingly nudged it on its way. Graeme Swann swallowed the offering, and after seven deliveries of the fourth day, the stable door was flapping open.
